About Me

ABOUT ME

I am an International Relations professional who really loves travelling and meeting people from all over the world. I have travelled to many places: Uruguay, Brazil, Chile and the United States: Boston, Chicago, NYC, Washington D.C, Texas and so on. Next holidays I'd like to visit Europe.

PHILOSOPHY

I think each moment is unique, and well worth waking up each morning being conscious that life is a single opportunity to enjoy and getting the most of it.
